The meeting point of the Tsuk Tamrur hiking trail and the course of the Bokek stream forms a fascinating geographical crossroad in the heart of the desert. This intersection presents an ideal opportunity for trekkers to explore the divergent features of the Israeli landscape, from the rocky heights of Tsuk Tamrur to the watery respite offered by the Bokek stream. The blend of such varied terrains offers a unique spectacle of natural beauty, making it a must-visit spot for any passionate hiker.
Nahal Bokek, or Bokek Stream, finds its source in the Judean mountains, beginning its journey high amidst the harsh and beautiful terrain of the desert. Its upper course is characterised by steep and narrow canyons, lined with a mixture of rugged rocks and lush vegetation that finds life in the arid desert thanks to the stream's waters. Small waterfalls and natural pools punctuate this terrain. It offers a refreshing respite for travellers and a unique ecosystem for desert wildlife before the creek continues its journey towards the Dead Sea.
